9/10 according to Ant (Norman Records) on Thu 21 Mar, 2013
Essential newly remastered all-time classic compilation of timeless Detroit techno from the master Carl Craig. Kicking off with the future jazz of Psyche's 'Elements' and into darker terrain with a personal fave 'From Beyond'. These tracks seem to transcend time, despite their age they still sound as fresh, vibrant and vital to this day. Taking into account the more primitive technological means available it's really dazzling how these tracks stand head and shoulders above many of todays productions. Oozing with soul, funk, integrity and science fiction escapism.
This music wasn't part of a fashion rather it created many that exist today. This is foundation electronic / dance music mixing pure Detroit techno soul with emerging UK breakbeat culture. The original set has been expanded from six to nine tracks to include 'Crackdown', 'Andromeda' and 'Evolution. It's a bit of a shame it didn't mirror the 1996 CD edition on Planet E and include 'Sleep' for example but then just to have this back in print with three extras is a welcome bonus. If you don't already know the genius of the magical, haunting 'Neurotic' Behaviour then you're in for a ride. If you have the original double 12" set or even the original Transmat 12"s it's still worth bagging in it's remastered form in beautiful gatefold sleeve.
Edition of 1000 copies. BUY ON SIGHT!

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
